Will You Accept This Rose?

Last year, both Ty and Darren gave out wooden roses from Walgreens.  Ty gave them to Cami and Darren gave them to Lilah. To me, these roses are FAR better than fresh ones.  YES, they don't have a scent, but they last forever!!!

This year, I spotted them AGAIN and I bought one dozen! I figured Jax could give them out as Valentine's, in place of those painfully, annoying paper cards that go straight into the trash can as soon as Valentine's Day is over.

I figured I would come up with some clever saying and make a tag, but I didn't have anything in mind at the time of purchase. I sat down yesterday and within MOMENTS, it hit me.  "I GOT IT! I will use the FAMOUS line from the ABC show, the Bachelor!"
Will you accept this rose?
Granted, I haven't seen the show in over a decade, so who knows if ROSES still exist on the show or not! BUT, hey, it's still a clever line, isn't it?
I created a tag that I would love to share with you, if you wish to snag this idea just click HERE. You could also use single stem, chocolate roses or fresh roses. I just figured the wooden roses wouldn't melt or die.  
I didn't ask Jax for permission, haha.  I just hoped he would be willing to do this.
When Jax got home, I showed him the roses and the "punch line".  I was biting my tongue waiting for his reaction.
BOTH Lilah and Jax GIGGLED.  Jax seemed ALL FOR IT and Lilah exclaimed, "Oh my gosh.  ALL THE GIRLS in our class LOVE Jax.  They want him to be their boyfriend, so they will LOVE THIS!" Mission accomplished.
And seriously, who wouldn't accept a rose from this cutie pie?
